Great place to work

Application Engineer (Current Employee)
Columbia, MD

I have been working at Cadence Design Systems

ProsThe people and culture is very positive and comfortable. Even with complex issues to solve, we all can laugh and feel community---very open and natural---supporting culture. Everyone is focused on getting the job done so there is a great level of trust when it comes to dealing with personal matters and time off. Incredibly smart and helpful engineers make for engaging work. Great place to work if it is to raise a family or somewhere where you can run with your career.

ConsAt the mercy of corporate management who make decisions on the service business while treating it like the software arm.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
